To be workable, the features of a modern VPN should be secure, user-friendly and flexible enough to traverse the cloud for a variety of platforms.
Key design objectives when selecting VPN features must include the following:
- Secure remote access for users anywhere, anytime
- Easy setup, configuration, use and maintenance
- Affordable for widespread corporate use
- End-user friendly: There should be no obvious performance problems, no major usage hoops to jump through, no gotchas or other downsides to regular/frequent use.
